waynecs: Thank you for taking the time to reply --- so that was just a couple of days after the wild 2nd set "Dancin'> Frnaklin's > He's Gone ?> Caution > Other One" at the Cape (10/27) followed-up by the first set opening the following evening at the Cape of "Mississippi > Franklin's". === Brent seemed so much more "ON" when he first began playing with the band.
waynecs: thanks again, --- AshesRising

High guys!

Hey i just had to say i love DP13, the scarlet>fire is right up there on my list when i want to hear that particular combo. I had the opportunity to party with Dick at a bar and then later at the Palladium in Worc. Mass, during the "release party". I dont know if they still do these or not, but it was an attempt to get the family together in the post jerry world, (and sell some cds). It was a great nite, with one of the best deadbands (Slipknot)from the central mass area (now called The Knot i belive due to a heavymetal-eat-your-children-band of the same name)playing with various guests.
I remember walking into the bar and instantly recognizing Dick, having read about every interview he'd done. So i wait a bit and i decide i have to go over and say hello. He was baffled that i recognized him because he was "nobody". He greeted everyone with a hug and was a bit drunk already. :) I soon launched into my list of DP's "Must" shows from the New England area. And was amazed at the detail he remembered from each show i mentioned as he shot some of them down, and assured me others would be released someday. The "DarkStar" show from Boston Garden 9/26/91, and possibly a mix of 87' Worc, Centrum 4/2-4/4/87 to name a couple. I remember being amazed that Dick had "groupies". Unreal. I think these girls thought he was "the grateful dead" or something, they were barely old enough to drink, and kept asking for "backstage passes". We knew it was just a cd-release party but they seemed to think otherwise. LOL
Later on in the evening as we made our way into the venue for the party, 4 of my friends were arrested in an adjacent parking lot for smoking some ganja, and once inside we were told there was no phone to use. We found one of the girls from the office, (cassidy or elieen possibly) and they recognized us from the bar and took us upstairs to a phone so we could get our friends bailed out. Hey we couldnt LEAVE. haha
There was some real hilarious points in the evening, (Dick+BlondeGroupieGirls+Drinks=FUN) but those i will keep private and smile as i think of Dicks Wicked nite on the town, bringing us another nugget of history.
Sorry to rant just some great memories from the post-jerry world i remembered reading your post. :)
